From dazzling blue Lapis Lazuli to volcanic Snowflake Obsidian, an incredible variety of rocks are showcased in all their splendor. Poetic in voice and elegant in design, this book introduces an array of facts, making it equally perfect for classroom sharing and family reading.
Acclaimed childrens author, Dianna Hutts Aston, and award-winning artist, Sylvia Long, bring their talents together in this delightful nature series. Has a book ever left you at a loss to describe its beauty? That is how I feel about this series. There is so much I wish to say but my descriptions leave me feeling lackingand not able to do the books justice. Let me share a bit of the text from the sample, An Egg is Quiet. "An Egg is quiet. It sits there, under its mothers feathers on top its fathers feet buried beneath the sand. Warm. Cozy." Accompanying these words are detailed, vibrant water-color and ink illustrations. Scientific details are interspersed throughout. The next page displays, "An egg is colorful," with a two-page display showcasing over 30 different eggs, illustrated in immense detail. There is such magnificence here that I invite you to view sample pages on our website. Children will be spellbound by the stunningly illustrated, poetic writing texts. Whether your family loves nature or simply enjoys a quality childrens read aloud, you will not be disappointed. Old earth dating. 40 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
